The Chief Inspector of Prisons has called for a 'comprehensive review of strategies and policies':
- He said the review should ensure the treatment and conditions for remand prisoners was 'consistent with their unconvicted and unsentenced status'.
- Their rights and entitlements should also be clarified and they should be held in cells, and on wings, separate from convicted prisoners, "except in exceptional circumstances".
- Remand prisoners should be offered "the same opportunity to work as sentenced prisoners", the report added.
